Over & Back - 2019 Edition

By Ted House

After “State Tournaments Past,” it’s been easy to show the dominance set forth by the Northwest Conference, when it comes to playing for the coveted Gold Ball. It was never easier to do than March of 2018, when the NWC came away with three of the four championship trophies (with the fourth having been achieved the year prior).

By Ted House

The Lynden Lions defeated the Selah Vikings, 60-51, for the 2A State Championship, Saturday, March 3, in the Yakima SunDome. It was the tenth state championship for the storied Lions program. And in doing so, became the third group of Lions to win back-to-back state championships.

Lynden Defeats Pullman, Aims for Second Straight Title

Lyncs Regroup Quickly, Crush Seattle Academy
Mar 1, 2019 3:05 PM

By Ted House

Responding to a tough loss can be difficult. Responding to a state tournament loss can be even more so. Responding to a state tournament loss in less than 17 hours? That sounds impossible. However, the Lynden Christian Lyncs showed that youth can indeed turn the page quicker than the rest of us.

Not that they had a lot of choice, but the Seattle Academy Cardinals picked the wrong day to play the Lynden Christian Lyncs. Though the teams had played competitive games twice this season, neither the Cardinals, nor anyone else, had seen the Lyncs after a loss. Now they have, as the Lyncs crushed the Cardinals, 75-39.

REGIONAL RECAP: Everyone Advances

The Mt. Vernon High School gym, again, proved to be a home away from home for local Northwest Conference teams. The NWC went a perfect 6-0 in The Palace on Friday and Saturday, and in all, will send nine teams to Yakima for next week’s 1A and 2A boys and girls state tournaments.

From a Marathon to a Sprint
Feb 17, 2019 6:04 PM

By Ted House

After having no games over many days, suddenly, there were many games in very few days. The question for all was, who would be able to best use their time off?

I don’t think anyone went on a Hawaiian vacation (teams that is). It seems as though everyone came through the snow induced layoff just fine. The only thing left to do would be to negotiate the condensed tournament schedules.

The Week That Wasn't

The Week That Wasn’t

By Ted House

It seems that local athletic directors perspired more than the athletes this week. Because of the early week weather problems, all of our respective district tournaments had to be postponed. That meant a lot of work by AD’s to get things lined up again. You can bet that they now have back-up plans, for their back-up plans.

Winter & the Post-Season Arrive Together
Feb 3, 2019 12:58 PM

By Ted House

The first sign of winter snow accompanied by its long time companion, the Nor’easter, has finally hit. But we can’t deal with either of you right now, as it’s time for post-season basketball. And brackets don’t hold up well in the snow (see 2017). Plus the fact that I still need solid traction under my feet.

Lyncs Prevail in “The Game of The Year”
Jan 27, 2019 3:44 PM

By Ted House

In what was labeled as “The Game of The Year” in the state of Washington, the Lynden Christian Lyncs soundly defeated their cross-town rival, Lynden Lions, 75-57, Friday night at Jake Maberry Gymnasium.

The crowd, which just may be the largest ever to watch a high school basketball game in Whatcom County, was about 50 people deep when the doors opened at 3:15pm. The 3,000 plus jammed the two mammoth grandstands at The Jake, even filling aisles, hallways, and doorways.

Nothing Left to do But Play It

By Ted House

It was March 3, 2018. The boys court at the north end of the Yakima SunDome was done for the year. The Lynden boys team had secured their programs ninth state title, with a win over WF West. And the Lynden Christian Lyncs had just won their sixth state championship, with a resounding win over Freeman.

Many Questions Remain in the NWC
Jan 20, 2019 3:00 PM

By Ted House

With two weeks left in the regular season, there are several races that will be settled over the final four games. Who will emerge as the second and third seeds to the 1A District Tournament? Who will get the four first round bye’s to the 2A District Tournament? Will Ferndale hang on to a top ten District seed, and will Squalicum be able to fight their way back into contention? Oh, and that little issue concerning the Northwest Conference title is still up in the air.

We're All Just Day to Day

By Ted House

Due to a recent mishap, I was forced to spend some time on the Disabled List. Or, the Physically Unable to Perform List, if you prefer. Either way, not an enviable position.

Earlier this week I was having normal correspondence with AD’s and tournament directors concerning post-season basketball. I was also letting them know that my recent injury to my right arm may slow me down because I don’t go very well to my left.

Feats of Strength by the NWC
Dec 23, 2018 4:32 PM

By Ted House

As Festivus rolls on, we come to the feats of strength.

After a slow start, the Northwest Conference has been flexing its muscles lately against out of conference opponents. The NWC currently holds a 37-14 record against the OOC’s. I don’t know if that’s any better than the conference usually does. But, I do know, it’s really good!

NWC Coaches Lead the Way

By Ted House

There wasn’t a lot of intrigue in Northwest Conference action over the past week, but NWC teams did combine to go 15-2 against out-of-conference opponents.

None of the four games I saw this week were nail-biters, but there was high interest, none the less.
